Report: Wolves failed in deadline day move for Moore
The reason why Wolves failed in their pursuit of Kieffer Moore has emerged.
What’s the story?
According to The Telegraph, the Midlanders did not want to pay Cardiff City anything over £7m for the Welshman.
However, the Bluebirds were demanding a fee of £12m for the 29-year-old ace.
Moore was a star for Wales during their run at the European Championships in the summer. He scored the equalising goal in the side’s opening group game versus Switzerland.
The centre-forward was on fire for Cardiff last season, scoring 20 times in 42 Championship games.
As a result, he was tipped for the Premier League by his former manager Paul Warne, who compared him to Christian Benteke.
Moore could have been a great plan B for Wolves
Last season was a desperate campaign for former manager, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Goals were hard to come by in the Premier League with the outfit scoring just 36 in their 38 games.
As a result, attacking reinforcements would have been an ideal move from the club. It makes the failure to sign Moore look far more foolish for the outfit.
Moore could have been a perfect plan B option of the bench for Wolves.
His physical stature and ability in the air was on full show during Euro 2020 as he bullied the Swiss defence.
And alongside the pacey Adama Traore, he could have been a perfect player.
However, it was not meant to be and Bruno Lage is instead counting the cost of what could have been.
This season will be a struggle if the club cannot improve the attacking output, they so badly struggled with last campaign.
